Regrouping

14 December 2015

NO sooner had Saturday's defeat to Cambridge United concluded than Gregg Wylde was thinking about putting things right, starting Monday.

Argyle winger Wylde, scored his side's goal in a 2-1 defeat, and thinks the squad has plenty to do on the training field come Monday.

The loss, following a two-week break, was the first game played since a 1-1 draw at Dagenham & Redbridge which manager Derek Adams described as the worst performance of his tenure to date. 

“It’s two games in a row that we’ve not played well," said Gregg. "We’ve not taken the three points in the last two games so I think we’ve got something to work on in training field.

“I think we started the second half and did quite well. When we got the goal I thought we could go on and get the three points, but it’s just an error at the back that’s cost us at the end of the day. We just need to get on with it.”

The mistake to which Gregg refers came from Peter Hartley, whose slip allowed Luke Berry to run through on goal and net the winner. Hartley had an otherwise excellent game on his return from injury, and Gregg was keen to rally round his team-mate after the game. 

“People make mistakes," said Gregg. "I know Pete is a big influence in the team; he’s a good friend of mine as well. I just tried to say that to him in the changing room. We just need to move on these things happen.

“I think we missed him last week against Dagenham. He’s come back in and done well.”

Argyle travel to Hartlepool United next weekend, as the festive set of fixtures start to commence. 

“Hopefully we can pick up six points in the next two games and put us back on track," said Gregg. "The Christmas period is coming up, this is the time you need to not drop points. We’ve worked well up til now and we don’t want to ruin it. 

”Overall, I think we just need to sit down on Monday, regroup and hopefully we can get everybody back on the field.”
